Today I have another monthly round-up for you all of all the books I have been reading this month. I have had a busy month with finishing school, going on Muisc Tour to Germany and spending time with my family, so I haven’t got much reading done. Never the less I have enjoyed what I have done this month, so no harm done really. With the summer holidays here now I can make up for time I lost and get reading again. Here are the few books I have read this month:
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath is a Simon Snow fan.
Okay, everybody is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath it’s something more. Fandom is life. It’s what got her and her sister, Wren, through losing their mom. It’s what kept them close.
And now that she’s starting college, introverted Cath isn’t sure what’s supposed to get her through. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fanfiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.
Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she’s fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it’s time to act.
Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it’s how to hunt down what she wants … and how to take it.
But some jobs aren’t as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire
These are the only two books I have read this month because of how busy I have been and both of them are actually books that I decided to re-read. I didn’t really feel like started something new because there was so much going on and I needed something a bit lighter. Fangirl is amazing and it really inspired me to start writing again. I wanted to re-read the girl at midnight because the 3rd book has just come out, so I have decided to re-read the series because it has been a year since the last book. Both were amazing and I highly recommend both of them. I am going to be doing book reviews on both I think, so stay tuned for those if you want to know a bit more before buying the book. What have you read this month?
Goodbye for now!
Over and Out
